Now that it is steaming hot outside, I like to look back at our winter weddings. And one of my absolute favorites is the Willowdale Estate wedding of L+E. These two are such a treat to be around. We actually met L and formed a friendship when she was an intern with SD Events. When she got engaged, we couldn’t have been more excited. We were also thrilled when she hired another SD alum, Renee principal planner and designer at Urban Soiree.

So many things made this wedding extra fabulous- our super relaxed couple was just the beginning. Also loved their wedding party and their families. All of the pros involved were absolutely amazing- from Renee to the crazy awesome team at Willowdale to ???. And seriously the florals? Crazy beautiful. They brought tears to L’s eyes. And then there was the adorable flower girl, such a cutie. As she walked down the aisle, she very deliberately placed the flowers in even little piles along the way. So sweet.

Oh and last, but not least, we had the perfect winter weather, freshly fallen snow, and a couple who wanted to get in on it. Happy photographers, indeed.

Thank you to all the pros who helped make L+E’s day amazing!  — Ceremony and Reception: Willowdale Estate | Event planner: Urban Soirée | Floral Design: Karla Cassidy Design | Ceremony Musician: Arreaux Strings | DJ: Beat Train Productions | Photographer: Allegro Photography
